Historia

Historia is an online Ancient History learning application designed to make education fun through gamification. It was designed for a uni subject in which I also built the front-end of the Desktop/Mobile version to act as a High Fidelity prototype.

Gamification Solution

The solution to Historia was to create an online learning environment with many gamification features that made learning exciting, interactive and rewarding. The content was designed to connect historical insight with today’s issues and be open to draw from popular culture references.
